Disney’s live-action adaptation of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was one among their most profitable tasks, however even nonetheless, the considered a prequel sequence centered round Gaston (Luke Evans) and LeFou (Josh Gad) strikes me as odd. Disney formally handed out a sequence order for eight-episodes earlier this week, and whereas talking with Collider, Josh Gad might barely include his pleasure for what he calls one of the crucial bold tasks he is ever been part of.
I can inform you proper now that it is without doubt one of the most bold tasks I’ve ever been part of. Luke and I are so enthusiastic about bringing these characters again to life alongside a superb and distinctive new expertise in Briana Middleton enjoying this unbelievable new character named Tilly. Liesl Tommy, who’s our director, is planning on doing some unbelievably bold issues with this sequence in addition to our showrunners, Adam [Horowitz] and Eddie [Kitsis], who’re actually, actually, actually going locations I believe audiences will not be essentially prepared for. I can’t be extra enthusiastic about this present. I believe it’ll be enormously particular.
The scripts for the Magnificence and the Beast prequel sequence are nonetheless being written, however Josh Gad expects that manufacturing will start early subsequent 12 months. Regardless of my skepticism concerning the sequence, I am to see what Gad has in retailer for us.
Per the sequence’ official synopsis, the Magnificence and the Beast prequel might be “set within the iconic kingdom of Magnificence and the Beast years earlier than the Beast and Belle’s epic romance, the sequence will comply with Gaston (Evans) and LeFou (Gad) as they set off with LeFou’s stepsister, Tilly (Middleton), after a shocking revelation fro her previous involves gentle, sending the unlikely trio off on an surprising journey stuffed with romance, comedy, and journey. Whereas the mysteries of the previous are uncovered and the risks of the current develop, outdated associates and new enemies reveal that this acquainted kingdom harbors many secrets and techniques.“
